Konnichiwa Minasan! Ogenki desuka? This is Yoko writing again this week. Thank you sooooo much for your responses to my short survey from last week's newsletter. It was so much fun reading what our customers miss about Japan and their interests! Omoshiro katta desu!
Many customer said 'one day is not enough!'. Hahaha sumimasen, maybe if you had one week? was it enough? A customer from Canada said 'It was so nice to just think about all the lovely things to see and do in Japan when these dreadful Covid restrictions are all over - and it quite cheered my day to do the survey.' The responses really cheered my day too!! Honto ni arigato gozaimashita.

Arigato gozaimasu for all the answers!!!
I see that many customers have interests in historical things about Japan like old architectures and traditional arts of Japan. Some even had their own favorite Ryokan!! Arigato gozaimasu for finding many great things about Japan.
I also noticed that traditional foods like Sushi and Tempura are already available in many countries, but not many desserts!!!??? very interesting!
I realized that you know a lot about Japan, but I know a little about our customers. It was such a great opportunity to get to know more about you!!! Arigato gozaimashita for your time and wonderful communication!
